Nicki Minaj is on the cover of W magazine's November issue, which also happens to be the art and fashion issue.
For her spread, artist Francesco Vezzoli wanted to transform the Super Bass rapper into an 18th-century courtesan.
"In her performances, Minaj makes very explicit and challenging use of her beauty and her body, so I thought of comparing her to some of the most famous courtesans in history: the Marquise de Montespan, Comtesse du Barry, Madame de Pompadour, and Madame Rimsky- Korsako."
We think the concept is pretty brillz. Do U???
